In Parallel Faults large painterly gestures sweep across the gallery. Topographical maps of the surrounding San Fernando Valley and San Gabriel Fault line inform the scale, colors and patterns of the swaths. Stretches of silence are interrupted with multi-channel field recordings of tremors and earthquake sounds procured from geophysicists. The diagonal thrust of the visuals and the spatial distribution of sound synthesize to create a feeling of movement, raw power, and unease.
In addition, the exhibition will include a collection of rubbings on paper created by the students of the college. These rubbings, derived from the local area, reflect the personal interests of their makers and their intimate relationship to the locale, acting as a subjective counterpoint to the graphic, objective position of a visitor understanding the space through maps and scientific data.
